I voted yes...
Killing them is sufficient enough without getting hysterical, calm down...How about burning people at the stake?
Come back... reality is on this side of the line.Surely if Jack Bauer had to, let's say, dismember and cannibalize some children on live TV in order to save America from a terrorist plot, that would be justifiable?
I guess those of us that consider it will be alive and you wont. I won't spend too much time thinking about you and your refusal to survive though...The fact that anyone even considers it acceptable to treat the matter of torture as morally ambiguous is reprehensible - it is not ambiguous.
Am I the only one confused here?Questioning something does not make it questionable; debating it does not make it debatable;
If you say so...arguing over it does not make it controversial. There is no ambiguity here.
Only because we passed laws making it so, all we have to do is change those laws and it would no longer be illegal...Torture is illegal. It is a crime.
Unless you are torturing an evil person that wants to kill you and your innocent loved ones for no reason other than hatred, so that you can get information that will help you stop others of like mind.It is evil.
Oh please....There are no real-world circumstances under which it is justified.
Dang, you're harsh...Everyone who condones it is un-American at best.
Every person in America is in the position to stop it... through the power of voting. So, in essence, you are condemning tens of millions of people to first-degree murder with capital special circumstances. Pretty silly...Everyone who in any way facilitates it or tolerates it when they are in a position to stop it deserves long prison sentences. Anyone who directly commits it (as George W. Bush has admitted to doing) deserves to spend the rest of their lives in a maximum-security prison, and if their crimes resulted in any deaths (as it appears occurred in Bush's case), that constitutes first-degree murder with capital special circumstances.
No, this is the Internet and why don't you go spend some time with the Taliban and see if that changes your perspective at all...This is not a game. This is not a TV show. This is America in the 21st century,
Ahhh... those were the days. I remember the look on that one ladies face as she was just starting to burn at the stake... pure comedy.and anyone who looks with nostalgia on the Spanish Inquisition can kindly leave my country.
